A title would go here if I could be bothered writing one

So...haven't had much to say lately. I've been working almost every day, and going to school three nights a week. In other words, I am the walking dead. I also haven't had a drink in 21 days, and I keep telling everyone this like I'm in AA or something. Anyways, here's some boring fact friday for you.

FACT: I once ran the wrong way for about a mile in a marathon, because it was split in the middle between half marathons and whole marathons, and no one bothered to tell me that I was going the wrong direction despite literally hundreds of people standing around who WORKED AT THE MARATHON. I actually stopped running, jogged backwards and asked someone, who shrugged and said, "yeah, you are going the wrong way." and went back to what they were doing, which was standing around watching people run by. So then I had to run full-tilt back to the splitting point and still managed to catch up with someone I started with. It was a relay and everyone was disappointed that I didn't make up for the earlier leg's lost time.

FACT: I still made really good time, considering the extra whole mile I ran.

FACT: No one seemed to care about that at all.

FACT: The other day I was lifting some 10 pound weights over my head to work the back of my arms, and somehow managed to bring the dumbbell down upon the top of my skull with such force that someone on the phone across the room stopped mid-sentence to ask if I was ok because it made such a loud whomp.

FACT: It really hurt a lot.
